When I Upload a document e.g. Word or Excel documents to a document list. Are the files saved directly binary to an SQL database? If yes, could someone give me a url by MS, where I can find further informations?


Yes, documents are stored as blobs in the site collection content database (SQL Server). You can read about document management in the Microsoft blog, and on database management on technet.
